Randy Moss arrived at the New England Patriots five years ago
thinking he knew a lot about football.
Then, he began playing for Bill Belichick. Moss’ mindset
regarding his own football knowledge changed in a hurry. Only then
did he learn the intricacies of his sport from ”A to Z,” as the
49ers wide receiver now puts it.
Moss returns to Foxborough, Mass., this weekend with his new
team to face the high-scoring Patriots in prime time – a matchup of
Tom Brady and the AFC’s top offense against NFL sacks leader Aldon
Smith and the NFC’s No. 2 defense.
The 35-year-old Moss hardly has the playmaking role as a
14th-year pro that he did as a youngster in the league, yet that
didn’t stop Belichick from piling on the praise this week.
